recipe: 1 founder's ipa, 1 tuborg lager, and then 1 shipyard ipa. the shipyard shows a fantastic complexity in this sequence. it's interesting that shipyard calls it a "light copper" ale. i agree totally. copper ale means to me that the back end of the palate is emphasized... the shipyard ipa does this extremely well.

This brew has a decent, hoppy aroma and a fairly typical appearance for an IPA. The flavor is hoppy, but leaves me wanting more. And the palate is a little watery, as I expected. I probably won't get this again because there are similar beers from Sierra Nevada and even Harpoon which are simply better in almost every way.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - FEB 6, 2004
Clear golden amber color, big rocky off white head. Big orangey citrus hop aroma, touch of malt. Sweet, earthy malt, citrusy hop flavor. Hops are almost sweet too but leave a nice long bitter finish. Medium to full body, creamy. A very nice IPA, hoppy but very nice balance.

DCopperfields (146) - New York, USA - FEB 4, 2004
ight off, this is a good IPA. It just became available in the NY market, and so I was excited to give it a try. Poured a golden copper color, nice thick rocky head deveoped on top. Head stayed with the beer awhile, halfway through leaviing decent lace to grab the pint glass. Floral presence in the aroma, a good deal of hop here. Nothing spectacular in the taste, good hop right up front, nothing special to follow, but the drinkability is good. I had another one. There is better easily available, but this one is certainly worthy of drinking.

Golden color with a white head. Hoppy nose with a strong aroma of honey. Tastes strongly of honey and apples. Pretty standard stuff.

Glowing golden with white bubbly short lasting head. Hoppy and sweet in the nose with wheaty hoppy taste. Nothing too exciting here.

Burnt orange with thin white head. Toasty hopped nose. Metallic sharp flavors ... apple predominates. Tangy to a fault.

UPDATED: FEB 3, 2004 Orange/Amber color. Hop character was rather bland and the flavor seemed like it was missing something. I wasnt impressed by this IPA. Had a hard time finishing the six-pack.

sweet, fruity aroma. amber in color, little head. sweet and malty-- the commercial description is spot on. lots of fruity flavors. the hops are there, but they last on the palate for only a brief moment. very dry.
